In a quick check of their discography here is what I found in the RHCP catalog that I liked.
Suck My Kiss
Give It Away
Under the Bridge
Scar Tissue (basically Under the Bridge with different lyrics)
Californication
one song on new record,don't know the name

It should be mentioned that they butchered 3 classics Subterranean Homesick Blues,Higher Ground and Rollercoaster.I believe their first record came out in 84',so that's a fairly long career to yield a few good songs.

The Beastie Boys on the other hand produced a masterpiece in Paul's Boutique,and if they did nothing else that trumped the RHCP entire career,but they also put out 4 other impressive albums and the most recent with which I am not familiar.A quick overview if you are inclined to give them a listen.

Check Your Head:
So What'cha Want
Pass theMic

Ill Communication:
Sabotage
Root Down
Flute Loop

Hello Nasty:
Body Movin'
Intergalactic (sample lyric-"like a pinch on the neck by Mr. Spock")
Dr. Lee Phd (w/Lee Scratch Perry)

To the 5 Boroughs:
Ch-Check it Out
Hey,Fuck You

I don't hear the diversity you mentioned in the RHCP,they sound to me like a rock/funk band,whereas the Beasties truly display diversity through the use of samples and later on instruments,their dj is a seriously talented individual.
